Goodreads | Amazon

Tuper is helping find five-year-old Mason, who was presumably taken by his father. But when Mason’s father is found unconscious, Mason has disappeared again.

In an impossible search during a bitterly cold Montana blizzard, old cowboy Tuper and his hacker friend Lana’s quest blurs into one of insanity and murder. As wounded Tuper fights to stay alive in the bitter cold, Lana searches cyberspace and finds someone is working hard to ensure certain secrets remain secret — especially Mason’s true identity.

From the Author:

This was a fun book to write. Tuper, a character from THE ADVOCATE’S FELONY, was a reader favorite. I received many emails asking for “more Tuper.” So I decided to give him his own series. Tuper is an aging cowboy who lives in Montana and seems to know everyone in the state. His interests include three things: guns, gambling, and women. People seek his services because he knows how to get things done.

Tuper reluctantly receives help from a very unlikely partner — a young woman who is more than proficient on a computer. They are polar opposites, but they both bring a unique skill set to the table.

Detective Tom Harrington’s touch is like a warm balm, soothing life’s scratches from Linda Wheeler’s troubled heart, but he is also the last man she should trust: a stranger, a cop, a threat to all she holds dear.

INSIDE 
Leaving her two-timing, alcoholic husband was tough, but single parenting is harder. Still, waitress Linda Wheeler will do anything for her teenage daughter. Jessica might be rebellious, but at her core she’s sweet and good, and a mother’s love must remain deep and true. Even when her child makes a terrible, perilous mistake that might end her in jail—or worse.

AND OUT 
Detective Tom Harrington has personal reasons for keeping an eye on Carl Jenkins, so he follows the recently paroled rapist to the small Michigan town of Berrien. There he finds something even more personal…and confusing. Why would a seemingly decent woman write letters, pouring her heart out to such a dangerous convict? Is she really as lonely as she is beautiful? Linda Wheeler is a mystery that demands unraveling, just as her soft lips demand kissing and her wounded heart demands soothing. Above all, he must protect her—and his own secrets. Continue reading »
